SOLVIT is an online problemsolving network, where all EU Member States work together to solve, without initiating legal proceedings, problems caused by the misapplication of EU law by Member State authorities.
There is SOLVIT centre in every EU/EFTA Member State and using the SOLVIT network is free of charge.
If you encounter barriers to the free movement of goods in the EU, you may try to solve the issues through the SOLVIT-network.
If you want to complain about an administrative decision on mutual recognition specifically, a special SOLVIT-procedure is set in place, where the Commission is committed to give an opinion within 45 days if the SOLVIT centres can’t agree on the solution. This follows from the new regulation on mutual recognition (EU) 2019/515.
